Cancer is something that has rocked + shattered the world of many people. My husband was diagnosed with cancer in August 2014 and after many prayers and miracles, he #BEATCANCER at the age of 30. I often reflect back on that experience and recall some of the most vivid memories and tender emotions. It was such an emotional ride. The one memory that I reflect on with the most peace was our last-minute decision to escape to the beach right before Allen’s chemo treatments started. We packed up our van with our four kids + everything we’d need to hit the beach, even though our two girls were starting to get colds. And we fought the idea that it didn’t make any sense financially with all of the bills that would be piling up. But it was honestly the best emotional escape I’ve ever had from the heavy burdens of life. It refueled us and helped us feel ready to take on all that was ahead of us. I’m so SO glad we made the decision to go!
That is the backstory to why I’m determined to help relieve the emotional burden placed on families diagnosed with cancer by providing them with the same type of escape.
Frost Design Co. and Promising Frost will pledge a portion of all profits to For Pete’s Sake: a non-profit organization based in Philadelphia that helps provide adult cancer patients and their loved ones with a respite vacation.
So when you purchase any of my items from ANY of my shops, you’re not only supporting a young family that’s experiencing the financial setbacks of health problems, but you’re also supporting a family embarking on their own journey with cancer.
